Anthospermeae is a tribe of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae and contains 208 species in 12 genera. Its representatives are found in the Southern Hemisphere, with the exception of the two species of the genus Phyllis.[1] At least two genera, namely Coprosma and Galopina are anemophilous.[2]
